West Seattle Summer Fest Eve, Art Walk, and so much more happening on your Thursday

BIG day/night ahead! First, West Seattle Summer Fest Eve, with street closures in The Junction starting as soon as 4 pm, so festival setup can begin. It’s also become a fun night for locals to wander – and this time, there’s more than ever.

CHALK ART: At the locations on the map below, you’ll find chalk artists starting at 6 pm – you’re invited to join them!

BUBBLEMAN: The popular performer will be at California/Alaska starting at 6:30 pm.

YADDA YADDA BLUES BAND: They’re playing outside West 5 (4539 California SW; WSB sponsor) starting at 7 pm.

In The Junction and beyond, second Thursday means …

WEST SEATTLE ART WALK: Here’s the new venue list/map:

Note that some venues have artists, some have food/drink specials to enhance your Art Walk night, some have both! It starts at 5 pm and goes “until late,” depending on the venue. This month’s highlights are listed here, including the Art Walk debut of Verity Credit Union (4505 California SW; WSB sponsor), where artist Sarah Ghanooni and musician Gretchen Yanover will be featured 5:30-7:30 pm. Also, Click! Design That Fits (4540 California SW; WSB sponsor) will host Erica Gordon of Steel Toe Studios, 5-9 pm.

Remember that, as you can see on the list/map, Art Walk stretches beyond The Junction – for example, Viscon Cellars (5910 California SW; WSB sponsor) is a regular participant, waiving tasting fees for Art Walk’ers, and this month featuring artist Debbie Bianchi 6-9 pm.
